You still talkin' to me?

The word on the street at the Berlin Film festival is that Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese may be planning to "revisit" 1976 classic Taxi Driver - either as a sequel or a remake.

Taxi Driver writer Paul Schrader dismissed the idea of a sequel in a Guardian interview back in 2006, but subsequently told the New York Post: "I was talking with Martin Scorsese about doing a sequel to Taxi Driver, where [Bickle] is older."

The rumour mill claims that the project will involve Lars Von Trier, although the Antichrist director's producing partner, Peter Aalbaek, "said rumours von Trier wanted to re-make Taxi Driver were 'rubbish'", as ScreenDaily puts it.

Scorsese - in Berlin to promote Shutter Island - did confirm that he and De Niro were planning to hook up for another mob movie. He said: "Bob De Niro and I are talking about something that has to do with that world - there's no doubt about that.

"We're working on something like that, but it's from the vantage point of older men looking back, none of this running around stuff." ®
